New Mask Order
J. Patrick Reilly

Not totally unexpected was Governor Tony Evers announcement that the mask order is being extended through November 21.
Anyone following the trail the pandemic is taking should not be alarmed at an attempt to help. Unfortunately, while there is an order there is not much in the enforcement part to make it work.
Again, it comes down to each and everyone of us to do our part in slowing down the pandemic until a vaccination can be found. If you don't believe this is something that is serious, just look at the 200,000 deaths recorded in the United States and look at other countries that are taking new measures to curb the uptick.
It is your choice to mask or not, but we are hoping the decision is to mask. There are many health care experts that say this works but it will only work if we do it.
The decision is yours. Please make the right one.
